My Father, Antonio De Oliveira Bernardes, arrived in South Africa at a very young age. With a traditional Portuguese background he was a natural born Businessman. This he proved when he ran his own successfull Business, sadly he passed away however I can only thank my father for giving me the knowledge to run my own businesses, the constant support he gave me and sharing a passion for photography. Although he never ventured into photography, he had a good eye for detail and was always the first to comment where I should improve. Together with the support of my family , my mother Sharon and my brother Marcell Bernardes I completed my Photography course with a distinction. I proceeded to follow photography as a career and faced many challenges on the way but stuck it out and continued to do what I love. I managed to gain recognition for my work which was published on the cover of magazines, newspapers and more...
At a later stage in my career Werner Bekker and Michelle De Villiers became a part of the MV Photography team. With her creative flair and out of the box ideas , together with my experience we make an unstoppable photography team.
